The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK's National Measurement Institute and a world-leading centre of excellence in developing and applying the most accurate measurement standards, science and technology available. NPL employs over 500 scientists, based in SW London, with a 36,000 square-metre purpose-built building with 388 of the world's most extensive and sophisticated measurement science laboratories. NPL offers a range of undergraduate and posgraduate opportunities, from placements (summer & year-long) and graduate roles to PhD/post doc projects.

Dr Cyrus Larijani, Surrey alumnus, has a 1st degree in geophysics and an MSc in Environmental Chemistry. He then completed an EngD in Nuclear Engineering with Surrey while working full time at NPL as a Higher Research Scientist/Senior Research Scientist. Cyrus will talk about his career journey from degree/PhD to Nuclear Strategy Lead at NPL. He will be joined by Holly Stemp, 3rd year MPhys student, who worked on the non-uniqueness associated with Standard Platinum Resistance Thermometers for a SEPnet summer placement at NPL this summer.

The talk starts at 1pm and ends at 2pm. Lunch is available from 12.40pm in 30BB03.
